Crestview Police are investigating another shooting, this time a female who was shot while visiting her grandmother’s home.

A March 17 home invasion incident cites 19-year-old Crestview woman, Baylee Mendes, as the female shot while at her mother’s house on Virginia Court. This incident is a quarter mile from a shooting that occurred less than three hours earlier in which two men were shot, a bloodied Kreskin Robinson seeking help at a nearby Waffle House for assistance.

According to the incident report, a witness said a white male and a black male, their faces covered by bandanas, burst through the front door and one of them shot at Mendes as she ran upstairs.

When Crestview Police officers arrived two minutes after receiving the call, the witness advised the intruders had fled the residence.

A Crestview resident contacted the Crestview Police Department at 1:57 a.m. March 17 about a home invasion at 202 Virginia St., Crestview.

Officers arrived at 2 a.m. and “immediately began performing first aid on Ms. Gibson’s 19-year-old daughter who had reportedly been shot by intruders,” CPD Public Information Officer Brian Hughes stated in an email about the invasion. source

The first officer on scene then administered first aid to Mendes until Crestview Fire Department medics and Okaloosa EMS arrived minutes later. She was transported to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center where she was treated for her non-life-threatening wound.

Anyone with information about either incident is urged to contact the Crestview Police Department at 682.3544.
